Tomas Rosicky Retires From Football At 37
Injury plagued career played a major role in his mid-season announcement
The Czech international who spent 10 years in the English Premier with Arsenal has decided to put an end to his football journey.
The former Arsenal playmaker who returned to his boy hood club Sparta Prague last season made the big announcement after his injury plagued history took a toll on him.
“After careful consideration, I have realized I am no longer able to fully prepare my body for what the professional football requires,” Rosicky said, explaining his mid-season announcement.
“I would like to thank Sparta for raising me, for being the first step in my career in big clubs, and for allowing me to say goodbye at the place I love the most.”
Rosicky won two FA Cups at Arsenal, but failed to make more than 28 Premier League appearances in any campaign at the club.
The midfielder made more than 100 appearances for his national team.
Anybody who enjoys good football will surely love Rosicky.
